Twelve students from Seton Hall were accepted in the LinkedIn Student Learning Ambassador (LSLA) program. Students were invited to tour the New York LinkedIn office as part of their orientation, where they met the LinkedIn Learning Customer Success Team and program ambassadors from other universities.
As a LinkedIn Student Learning Ambassador, students are encouraged to become a leader on campus and take ownership of their learning. Student ambassadors are trained by LinkedIn and develop an impressive portfolio of work as they engage in a series of initiatives and projects. These initiatives and projects will bring awareness of opportunities with LinkedIn and LinkedIn Learning to Seton Hall University.
Students not only have untapped opportunities for learning outside the traditional brick and mortar approach, they have untapped creative abilities to contribute to and engage in regular dialogue about learning. At the completion of the program, students will earn a LinkedIn Student Learning Ambassador certificate and an employment reference from the LinkedIn Customer Success Team.
LinkedIn’s vision is to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. LinkedIn’s mission is to connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful. LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda.com in 2015 places LinkedIn in the unique position to prepare students for success, modernize the classroom, and ensure faculty and staff continue to professionally develop. The combination of quality, expert-led content from Lynda.com, and the data driven insights from LinkedIn’s massive professional network have allowed the creation of a comprehensive learning solution that can help students prepare for academic and career success.
